Hope everyone is well and enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. We spent the day with my family, had a beautiful meal, did lots of visiting and catching up (I took an unexpected nap in the recliner) and enjoyed the nice weather. Praying the cold front coming in doesn’t stay around too long.

Produce is back online this week. Some of our vendors will be offering specials this week – kind of like a “Black Friday” or “Cyber Monday” sale but it will last Sunday through Wednesday.

Skopp Bakery will be giving away a bag of home made caramels when you purchase at least $10 in items from them. Jams and Jellies make great gifts and are a nice appetizer to take to a party. Just put your favorite jam over cream cheese and serve with crackers or hearty bread. Rikki also makes great scones, granola, loaf breads, artisan breads, and more.

Susi’s Kitchen is offering two mini loaves for $8.00 – gluten free, banana, cranberry or pumpkin; and 1 dozen cookies for $7.00 – any that she has listed online.

I expect there will be additional vendors participating so please watch for additional announcements as I hear from them.

We are thankful for all of our market patrons and wish you many blessings this holiday season!

The market will be open for business this week, through Wednesday at 5 p.m. and you will be able to pick up your orders on Saturday between 9-11 a.m. Opossum Hollow Produce is taking vacation time this week due to the holiday so there will be no produce available.

However, you can still get your eggs, meats, jams & jellies, baked goods and crafts. After a couple days of turkey leftovers you know you’re going to want something different. ;)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Availability of Extra Produce

Just a note to let our online market shoppers know that Opossum Hollow Produce will not have any extra produce available at tomorrow’s pick up. Nine degree temps slow things down pretty fast and we need a few more warm days to help the greens recover from that cold spell.

Thank you for continuing to support the market.

Hard to believe we may have our first snow on November 16th. I miss fall and really wish it would return, but it looks like we may have a very cold, wet early winter according to the persimmons and the meteorologists.

Roca Baby Candy has opened up online and added two types of Almond Roca. This would make a great addition to your holiday dessert table. I’ve sampled her candy and it is delicious!

Opossum Hollow Produce has updated inventory and also hopes to have some extras this weekend. So, if you miss getting an order in online there is the hope of purchasing at the pick up location on Saturday.

J.D. Hudson Farms is back online as well.

The market now offers over 200 products online – locally grown or locally made! We are truly a blessed community!
